NFL fantasy football: Peyton Hillis not just a handcuff

Can Peyton Hillis replicate the success of Thomas Jones for the Kansas City Chiefs?

Fantasy Feedback: Week 16

A running log of NFL Week 16 from a fantasy perspective.

Haley refuses to address Baldwin, Jones fight

Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley did not deny that there was a fight this week between first-round draft pick Jonathan Baldwin and veteran RB Thomas Jones, but did not directly address the issue, either, in his remarks following a preseason loss at Baltimore.

L.T. is back, but expect more of Greene

Jets RB LaDainian Tomlinson will be back with the team in 2011, but Shonn Greene is the man to target.

Chiefs QB Cassel throwing TDs again, even to Bowe

Chiefs QB Matt Cassel is throwing touchdowns again. Just a few weeks outside of an appendectomy procedure that threatened to wreck the Chiefs playoff hopes along with some of your fantasy hopes. That is great news. Not so much if you are waiting for WR Dwayne Bowe to get back track. Cassel has already thrown two touchdown passes against the Titans, both to RB Jamaal Charles. The bigger concern for Bowe owners is if the Chiefs put this game out of reach early in this game (and the Chiefs are driving again). That would mean more attempts for Charles and RB Thomas Jones, less targets for Bowe. That point, however, has just been rendered moot because of a long touchdown […]

Haley starting to see the light?

Chiefs coach Todd Haley has become persona non grata among fantasy enthusiasts for his use of his running backs Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones. But could he finally be correcting himself?

Noteworthy nuggets from Week 3

A look at a few of the notes to come off the NFL Network research desk in Week 3.

Overreaction Theater: Foster benched for the year

Texans RB Arian Foster committed the football equivalent of stealing a briefcase form Marcellus Wallace — he fumbled.

A lot of awesome running backs in the AFC West

Take a moment to consider who will be the probable running backs for the AFC West teams this weekend. Darren McFadden, Thomas Jones, Laurence Maroney and Mike Tolbert. Somebody please explain to me why Jamaal Charles is sitting on the bench?

Overreaction Theater: Mathews already a bust

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews fumbled, hurt his ankle and then watched Mike Tolbert score two touchdowns — what should have been his touchdowns. Already the anxiety is becoming too much.

Haley doesn’t think much of your fantasy team

There was a lot of speculation that Chiefs coach Todd Haley hated fantasy enthusiasts. And now he has come out and admitted it, too.
